The new VN-702PC digital audio recorder is great for simple and easy note-taking in the classroom or at work. The new design features a large LCD and built-in stand, 2GB of internal memory and microSD memory card compatible allowing you to easily capture high-quality audio with ease. The VN-702PC enables you to download your files via USB and records in both MP3 and WMA formats.


With 2GB of internal memory and 823 hours of recording time, you’ll be able to capture notes, lectures, and more – and still have room to store documents. The device also features a microSD slot with the potential to hold up to 32GB of additional memory.


The built in stand placed on the back of the body is carefully designed to reduce the noise from the surface when the recorder is placed on the table. It works much like a kickstand and allows users to read the menu without having to look down at the recorder.


Allows high speed, mass storage of files for emailing or saving of audio files and fast transfers to your PC.


Record and play back in both of the standard high-function formats: MP3 and WMA.


The Calendar Search Function allows you to easily search for files by date – and play them back with ease.


Voice Activation makes automatic starting and stopping of the recorder an extra benefit that saves time and energy.


Wherever you are, whether it’s a conference room, large hall, or at home dictating, the microphones will automatically adjust to capture the best sound depending on your setting.

Customer Reviews of the VN-702PC

A Real Lifesaver

First of all, I want you to know I usually don't do reviews because I tend to be honest, and sometimes the truth hurts. In this case, however, honesty is a testament of praise.

As a writer I sometimes interview people for their knowledge. I have to admit, before the 702PC I relied on an old fashioned tape recorder. When my 92 year old father found out what I was using, he ordered your voice recorder and then gave it to me as a gift, along with a phat SD card and all the amenities. I took it home, set it up and turned it on in my active living room for forty five minutes. I took the 702PC to my laptop and copied the recording then listened to it. The sound is absolutely crystal clear, without distortion or confusion, and is ready to use in Movie Maker and other audio programs or even high quality software like Vegas Pro.

In two days I'm going to record my pastor's sermon (which has never been done before) and next week I interview tornado survivors for a book project. At least now I don't have to worry about the equipment! If the taste I had of the quality of the 702PC is any indication, I won't lose a single precious word. Now I just need to understand the dialect. :)

hey i got this vn-702pc about a month ago. and its fantastic so far and i used it to record my lectures and everything. the sound quality is really good and the memory is great! u can always shift the recordings to your laptops and get your hours for recording back ( which according to me is awesome) . you can also put in your sd card and record lectures on that.

Superior product

Excellent sound quality and recording sensitivity

I purchased my 702pc with some hesitancy. I had not been impressed with digital recording; but this little device is amazing. Its adjustable recording sensitivity and long recording times are outstanding. On playback, the recordings are crystal-clear. I use it for interviews, meetings, and personal notes. It's exactly what I wanted, better quality than I expected, and without having to spend a fortune to get it.

Excellent product

I bought the VN-702PC on somewhat short notice and required overnight shipping for usage at a conference I would be traveling to. I had no prior experience with digital voice recorders, save for having a friend who owned one (though not this make/model). Using the default recording setup (I did not have much time to study the features), the recordings which I captured over several days were quite impressive, considering it was being used in rooms of different size (from a grand ballroom down to a small classroom). The recorder has both a mic input (which I did not use) and an earphone input, which can be used for playback and during recording (if you wish to monitor the recording). There is also a built in speaker which can be used for playback; I mostly use the earphone input for listening. The record/play/advance menu control is relatively intuitive. I can't predict the long term usage, but I am very pleased at this time with my purchase and could recommend this product to others.

Excellent product

I bought this voice recorder, got it yesterday. It's so easy to use. Glad I bought this model because I added a micro SD card also adding a lot more space to use. The sound quality is wonderful, I listen back on headphones and sound is great. Many adjustments you can use. Great device to have if you have to make notes to yourself or for a verbal journal or for whatever reason.
